PreSonus Studio 26c Overview

  • 1Description

The PreSonus Studio 26c is a 2x4 USB Type-C audio/MIDI interface offering high-resolution conversion and a powerful software package for vocalists, musicians, and podcasters in home/project studios and mobile setups. Connect mic-, instrument-, or line-level sources via two XLR-1/4" combo inputs, each utilizing its own gain control and XMAX-L solid-state mic preamp with selectable phantom power. Operate at up to 24-bit / 192 kHz resolution without sacrificing channel count or interface functionality.

The Studio 26c has four balanced 1/4" line outputs; the first two are fed by a dedicated level control for use with a pair of active monitors. A 1/4" TRS stereo headphone output with a front-panel volume knob accommodates a set of headphones. 5-pin MIDI I/O jacks on the rear panel allow simple hookup of a MIDI controller, synthesizer, or sound module.

The bus-powered Studio 26c includes USB cables for easy connectivity to your compatible macOS or Windows computer. Also supplied is a software bundle featuring the Studio One Artist DAW and the Studio Magic plug-in suite—a slew of creative tools for producers, engineers, songwriters, and more.

    is this interface compatible with the new ipad PRO?
    Asked by: Mario
    PreSonus does not address that issue directly, however, on their forum it is indicated that it should work with 2018 iPad Pros when using the original Apple cable.
